Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film The Good German

This is more than just a showcase for Soderbergh's obvious technical abilities; with the idea of juxtaposing an archaic form of filmmaking with the contemporary dramatic elements intended to exaggerate the brutality and emotional frailty of the central characters, in a way similar to what Scorsese did in New York, New York. A bit of a failed experiment perhaps, but I still found it interesting.
